Drainage, irrigation system upgrade


MUAR: More than 220 families in Felda Lenga, Batu 27, here have lauded the government's recent allocation of RM1.2 million for upgrading the settlement's drainage and irrigation system.

The project, expected to be completed by the year-end, would resolve the current flash-flood problems that have plagued the locals for more than a decade.

Felda Lenga village development and security committee chairman, Jalil Salleh, said a concrete drainage and widening of a 12km road were part of  the project.

"Heavy rain often cause flash flood in the area and the roads are easily inundated," said Jalil.

The project would be spearheaded by Felda's Segamat region engineering unit led by Azli Abd Azi, who said it would be carried out over three phases.

"We will begin in areas where flash floods occurred most frequently. We will then move on to the other phases," said Azli.
